To Inherit the Land

And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,  “O Lord GOD, Thou hast begun to shew Thy servant Thy greatness, and Thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to Thy works, and according to Thy might?  I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.”  But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me,
“Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto Me of this matter.  Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan. But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.”
So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.  Deuteronomy 3:23-29
